Algorithmic Justice League

www.ajlunited.org

An unseen force is rising—helping to determine who is hired, granted a loan, or even how long someone spends in prison. This force is called the coded gaze.

However, many people are unaware of the growing impact of the coded gaze and the rising need for fairness, accountability, and transparency in coded systems. Without knowing discriminatory practices are at play, citizens are unable to affirm their rights or identify violations.

The Algorithmic Justice League aims to:

  1. highlight algorithmic bias through provocative media and interactive exhibitions
  2. provide space for people to voice concerns and experiences with coded discrimination 
  3. develop practices for accountability during the design, development, and deployment phases of coded systems.
